Welcome to the Rotary Club of Preston 

People of Action

Hello there,
Preston Rotary is an active service club with diverse ages, genders, vocations and nationalities which provides great networking opportunities. We meet over lunch weekly, with a very broad range of interesting speakers.
 
Preston Rotary in particular gives students a go, we support them financially, as well as with awards and speaking opportunities.
 
The Pavilion School in Preston is just one example of our club offering financial support. This is a school for adolescents who have been disengaged or excluded from mainstream education. 

Over many years the club has supported three organizations in particular
 
  1.  Children First Foundation - who bring chronically ill children from underdeveloped countries, to Melbourne, often for life saving surgery. 
  2. Life Education - a community based independent organization that has a mobile van to educate school students in preventative drug and health education. 
  3. Next Step - offers long term intensive therapy for those who have suffered spinal cord injuries. 
 
Since 2016 the Rotary Club of Preston has created the Personal Care Pack Project  in partnership with the Pinchapoo not-for-profit organization. Through this project the Club has distributed over 30,000 Personal Care Packs containing personal hygiene items through our Rotary District 9790. This is an ongoing project and a sign of our commitment to supporting our community.
 
I often say to people … what doesn’t Rotary do on a world scale? …it’s a fabulous international humanitarian service organization!
 
Among other things, we in Preston, contribute to the eradication of Polio in the world, to disaster relief internationally through our support for Shelter boxes and Aqua boxes.
